Congrats to Heidi Gui who's work got in the Governor's Youth Art Exhibition. There have only been a few of Jerome students to have work accepted to this show in our school's history, so it's a big deal.

DJHS Book Drive (Apr. 24-May 1)
Books should be in good condition meaning: no annotations, rips, or tears. The book can be slightly worn but preferably in overall good condition. We also ask that the books being donated don’t have explicit content or any triggering scenes as some of these books will be sent out to mental health facilities.
If possible, we request that the donators provide a brief note along with the book(s) they donate that details general information about it: the genre, age range, subject matter, and any potentially concerning scenes (any trigger warnings) as this will make it easier for the officers to help categorize the books.
Pre-order your candy & treat filled eggs to be hidden in your front yard along with a note from the Easter Bunny. The fundraiser proceeds will help to fund summer camp and new uniforms for the Dublin Jerome Field Hockey Team.

CELTS, LEAVE YOUR MARK AT DUBLIN JEROME WITH A COMMEMORATIVE BRICK
With the new addition to Dublin Jerome High School, the commemorative brick patio is also getting some additions… your personalized Celtic Brick. The current brick patio was installed in 2014 to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the DJHS as a gift from that year’s senior class. Who knew that less than 10 years later, we would need the current additions to accommodate the incredible growth in our schools? The original patio will be relocated to the front of the school near the new school addition in the summer of 2023. The relocation allows us to add additional bricks to complement the original memorial bricks.
This is your opportunity to purchase a beautiful, engraved brick paver to celebrate and memorialize students, alumni, school team, club, organization, or your favorite teacher in a meaningful and unique way that is forever set in stone.
Fill out the information below to purchase your Celt Brick and then don’t forget to come to see your commemorative brick during the grand opening of the school next fall.
4x8 bricks are $100 and can have up to 4 lines with up to 21 characters per line (Recommended: 3 lines, 18 characters). All proceeds go directly to the PTO to support all students and teachers at Dublin Jerome.
